Morgan Carroll’s Clinton Trustworthy Dodge

Morgan Carroll, the Democratic candidate in Colorado’s 6th District, dodged a question about whether she shared the opinion of most voters about Hillary Clinton’s trustworthiness. In an interview with The Atlantic’s Molly Ball, Carroll said she doesn’t know if she trusts Clinton, but she agrees with her on “most of the issues.”

I asked if she shared most voters’ qualms about Clinton’s trustworthiness. “I mean, like, do you trust her? I don’t know, honestly,” she said. “But I do know that, if you look at the things she’s fought for, the things she’s been doing, most of the issues she has supported represent values pretty well aligned with mine.”

Last month, Carroll’s campaign avoided questions about Clinton’s email scandal, the Benghazi attack, and the DNC’s role in the primaries. Carroll’s inability to provide an answer on where she stands on Clinton’s trustworthiness shows she is out of step with the 56 percent of Coloradans who view Clinton unfavorably. Morgan Carroll owes Colorado voters a much clearer answer.
